About Fred Tiemessen
Father of two kids, who are living in The Netherlands now and spend five years of their lives in this house. They left to the Netherlands for study opportunities so I remained with a far too big house for myself. That's why I want to host guests to let them enjoy this astonishing place to be. I live here for more than ten years now and know this island and her people, businesses and everything/anybody one needs to maintain the house, keep it in top condition. I work for local government, well educated, speaking languages and can help you with any question you have, problem to solve or tips for things to do and places to go. I have arrangements with VIPDiving, offering you 20% discount for diving activities/fees (if booked online) and 10% at the counter. I also have arrangements with the nearest boutiquehotel El Encante for breakfast (only 10$), happy hour and terrific restaurant with a discount of 15% on food and beverage. I am easy going, 100% in control, relaxed and fully prepared to give you the best service to guarantee that your vacation will be the best ever. If you have any questions, please feel absolutely free to contact me by email or phone. At your service!
Fred Tiemessen purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Fred Tiemessen chose Belnem
Compared with other properties this is way out the best price/quality you can find on Bonaire. I am new in this business and just recently decided that I have to share this property with guests who want to enjoy Bonaire as it is in this private home with all the assets that makes your vacation to never forget. Nearby perfect beach at Delfins Resort. Only one minute walk. Best and most beautiful resort, best restaurant and dive shop.
What makes this Villa unique
Top location, lots of space inside and outside the poolvilla, terrific, large pool. Quiet and safe surrounding. For small families, but also groups up to 10 adults. Private property, no commercial intensions whatsoever. Just want my guests to enjoy their best holiday ever and let them experience this poolvilla like I and my family did.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Pool is wonderful
Loved the location and the owner is extremely accommodating. The house has everything that's needed to live in although it could use some spiffing up, i.e., pictures on walls, more chairs, cleaning up of couch slip covers and curtains, painting. Really, just general maintenance. Really a great place, though.
Yes, I know. The villa needs some upgrading. Marjolijn will help me and lots of things will be ugraded. We had a problem with three poles that had to be replaced. Is done. Now the other things are under execution. Nancy and John stayed in the house for three months. I think they are truly satisfied with the way I could solve some issues. But still some things to do. Coming months also the issues to be solved will be solved. I want my guests to have full pleasure staying in pool villa cool blue. So be sure you have the best place to stay for lowest price on beautiful Bonaire
One of best spots on the Island!
I have been going to Bonaire for 20 years now, including for the last 3 years in a row. Over these years, I have stayed with my family in different hotels and also rented houses and apartments, including some prime properties in front of the sea.
This year we stayed for two weeks (a group of 10 people in the first week and 8 people in the second, including kids and teenagers), at the Poolvilla House.
I can genuinely say this was one of the best properties we stayed so far. The house is relatively new and very well kept! All systems work fine, specially the A/Cs and roof fans. There is enough space to accommodate large groups split into the four bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Also, there are enough utensils in the kitchen and towels (including beach towels) for a large group, and the house was cleaned once per week, in addition to the final cleaning at checkout. The pool is another great feature of the house. It's large and clean, with always perfect water temperature due to the warm weather. Sometimes we used it twice per day, before and after going to the beach!
We are windsurfers, so the proximity of the house in Belnem to Lac Bay is also a very important point, when compared to other properties in downtown or in the North side of the island.
Finally; having Fred, the owner, around was a great bonus! He was easily accessible to answer any questions about the house and also rented one of his trucks in better terms than the local rental car shops, including picking us up and dropping us off at the airport. I also really appreciated his refined taste for good jazz music, and miss the CDs he kindly let us use in his truck!
We will certainly come back!!
Another great vacation in Bonaire!
Comfortable house. Everything needed for a pleasant stay. Fred the owner is very helpful and accommodating. Rent the truck. Saves time at the rental office! You do have to share the pool with the iguanas 😊😊😊!
Debbie and Irvin were perfect guests. Thanks for inviting me for diner. They served the daily catch of baracudas they catched earlier. Perfect and in nice company! And yes, I recommend to use the chevy colorado pick up as well. Next time you are more than welcome and with big discount! And for the iguanas? Sure, we have them on this island everywere. But normally you don't have to share the pool with them. Your comment should be seen as joke I suppose. See you next time with great pleasure!!!
Nice and comfortable but could use some minor repair.
The property worked well for our nine family members. The location is great with easy access to groceries and diving. There were a couple of minor issues but the owner worked to get them resolved promptly. Overall, a good vacation and I'd recommended the place to others.
Curt and his (family-)group were great to host. They were the first to rent both the house and the guesthouse. The whole property can host 10 - 12 persons. Next time this group is more than welcome. So Curt, hope to see you next time!
Great week of diving in Bonaire
We just returned from a great week of diving in Bonaire. Staying at Poolvilla Cool Blue house was a highlight. Fred, the owner picked us up at the airport and later took us back for our return flight. The house was comfortable and spacious. Covered pouch and pool area was where we spent most of our time and comfortable and private for apre diving and al fresco dining. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. The garden was full of flowering plants that the parakeets loved along with many other birds. There were great dive sites close by and a dive shop for swapping tanks minutes away. There was TV and air conditioning but we never used either as we didn't need them.
Fred, Thanks so much for sharing your house. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return visit.
Thank you Suzy with this review! I enjoyed your stay and you are more than welcome anytime. Even when the car was not perfect. This is fixed now and present guests have perfect cars. You know the house has everything for guests to have a great time! I am thankfull for your review! Glad to have you and all your friends also!
Best Deal in Bonaire
We stayed here for 2 weeks and absolutely loved the house. This was our 6th trip to Bonaire. We have stayed all over the island but the Punt Vierkant area is our favorite. It's very convenient to everything especially the southside. Of all the places we have stayed this is really the best deal out there. The owner Fred was very nice and helpful. He picked us up from the airport and had a bottle of wine for us when we arrived at the house which was great after a long day of flying. Everyday we would wake up and have breakfast out by the pool. The pool and garden are absolutely amazing. It was so nice to go out for a couple dives and come back and relax in the pool until dinner. There is a big covered porch and cabana that have a great breeze that's perfect for relaxing. The house also has a nice TV and surround sound with Satellite. We were able to watch the Auburn game sitting out by the pool. Each of the bedrooms have nice air conditioners and are very spacious. It's a really nice house with the comforts of home. We have stayed at the dive resorts and they are nice but to have a really nice house with your own pool and access to all the same scuba perks for less than the cost of a hotel is a no brainer. I can't say enough about this house and how much we enjoyed our vacation! We will definitely be back next year!
Thanks for your review Chris! I enjoyed having you as my first VRBO-guests and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. You were excellent guests and more than welcome anytime! Hope to see you next year! Regards, Fred
